Lottery season is kicking off. And the big daddy opened today, the Hardrock 100!
What the hardest 100? Well, this one according to my blog post years back. So why do it? Cause I am a bucket list kind of guy. This race is clearly that one. The way my friends like Tim talk about it at least. The odds are not great for getting in. There are only 35 slots TOTAL for runners that have never started the race. So that's my bucket. You get 2^N tickets per year you have tried so I am slowly gaining on the problem. I defeated the lottery for WS100 though. So there is a chance. Or my karma is spent.
Maybe you are wondering how I qualified with that DNF? Well, the window is 2 years and I finished WS100 and LT100 last summer and both are qualifiers. So I am good. If I don't get in, I will have to find a way to get another qualifier in summer of 2014 to stay in the hunt. That's part of the decision for the 2014 schedule.
So some Saturday in December, fate will decide the path for many runners including myself. Good luck to all! May you get in...after I do.
